"Do More With Less"

I can't believe I had to waste 3 1/2 hours on this!

Have you ever seen the Clint Eastwood movie, "The Outlaw Josey Wales"?

Chief Dan George plays Clint's Indian friend, Lone Watie. Lone Watie tells of his tribe's long awaited meeting with the government.

We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

I don't believe I've seen it, but I can certainly relate to the sentiment!

Did they tell you how to buy a £135 pair of shoes for £20? Or how to stretch the salary to fit the month? Or how to eat a whole box of chocolate for only 100 calories? Useful stuff like that?

If they had given us that kind of useful information, do you think I'd be complaining?

But no, all they could think to say was some rubbish about how we were going to become the biggest, baddest IT provider in the world; and if we all could do just a little more, with less resources, we'd get there really soon. "this time next year..."

So, what they said was: "We know you don't have enough resources now. It is not going to get better but will get worse. Deal with it and be more productive anyway." That sounds like a fun class, sign me up now.

Oh, I don't know. They were jumping around like frogs in the next room, where they were learning about being "High Performance Teams"...I'm serious!

God grant they don't make that one mandatory as well!

I had one of those "team building" classes one time where they line you up and have everyone catch one person as they fall and then pick them up and carry them around. It was kind of neat, but didn't do much for building up the team mentality.
